Beware of Soliciting Scam in Penn Yan

Reports of young girls soliciting money in Penn Yan may or may not be Girls Scouts.  Residents be careful whom you give your money to.  According to a news release, a few girls have been asking for cash from businesses in Penn Yan this week to fund a trip to Seabreeze. 

Member of the community should know that the policy of Girl Scouts is that girls may not directly solicit cash donations, but must do money-earning for their activities through delivery of a product or service to the customer.

Some examples of approved money-earning projects for Girl Scouts might be: collecting used ink cartridges turned in for money, conducting car washes or bake sales, and babysitting.
